BreakTweaker Features

MicroEdit Anything

Traditional sequencing is so 1984. With BreakTweaker, you can slice and manipulate audio at a resolution that would blow MIDI’s mind (and your DAW’s). Thanks to the MicroEdit Engine within BreakTweaker, each step can be repeated or chopped at an infinitesimally small rate, allowing you to create buzzing musical harmony, texturize a step with extra rhythms, or even use rhythm as a synthesis tool, locking drum hits to individual pitches. Even the most ordinary of drum hits can be transformed into a thing of the future.

  • Glitch and revolutionize any drum sample or rhythm with hi-res pitch, arp, and texture control—all the way down to a micro-slice level.
  • Take a wild ride through the audio space/time continuum by dividing a single sequenced event into up to thousands of unique slices that pulse with sonic movement, as defined by Division, Pitch, Time or Speed.
  • Create the most unique drum sound you’ve ever heard: add tension, slopes and curves to shape the contour and rotation of the slices, then apply additional FX.
  • Quickly change the entire sound of a beat with the Randomize feature, which automatically MicroEdits the selected step in your Sequencer pattern.

Create Evolving Sequences

Whether you’re working with drums, bass, or abstract noises, BreakTweaker is driven by the patterns you define in the Sequencer. Freed from the constraints of a pre-defined time signature, BreakTweaker’s Sequencer can program anything from basic patterns to unique tracks of patterns with individual lengths and speeds.

  • Build exciting beats with the 32-step Sequencer, with up to 24 patterns synced to your DAW. Launch, trigger, latch, and switch your way to full-fledged drum sample and synth productions.
  • Evolve and transform your patterns by giving each Sequencer track a unique tempo and step length, allowing the entire beat pattern to develop into new musical ideas over time.
  • Create entire productions, then route the individual Sequencer tracks to separate outputs for optimum mixing with BreakTweaker’s Multi-Out mode.

Explore Stunning Content

BreakTweaker comes with an extensive Factory Library of samples to choose from for building your next custom kit. Get the latest in cutting-edge drum sound design, as well as an entire suite of carefully produced classic sounds that no self-respecting drum library could be without. Why spend hours building the basics from scratch when BreakTweaker already has it all?

Sculpt Next-Gen Drum Sounds

The Generator is a powerful tool for drum synthesis. At its core are two Morphing Wavetable Oscillators—capable of reproducing anything from the simplest to the most complex sounds a synth can pump out. An entire library of custom waveforms by BT and other top producers gives you the building blocks you need to make compelling synthesized timbres.

  • Sculpt the next generation of drum sounds with unique-sounding wavetables, including BT's prized wavetables (never before available!).
  • Go far beyond traditional synth textures—choose from five wavetable synthesis modes: Single, Additive, Ring Modulation, Amplitude Modulation (AM), or Frequency Modulation (FM).
  • Morph and modulate away with quadruple LFO and Envelope modulation routing, perfect for adjusting pitch, wavetables, amplitude and more.
  • Get a start on advanced drum design with inbuilt Generator presets that you can tweak and adjust to taste.

Add Movement

Make every step of your next track sound more exciting, more musical, and more dynamic. BreakTweaker’s custom-designed LFO and Envelope provide some of the most creative modulation you’ll find anywhere. Each modulation source can manipulate the settings of any Generator parameter, moving the parameter between a modulation range of two values.

Get Effective

To dirty up, filter down, spread out, or otherwise mangle your sound, BreakTweaker’s Generators come fortified with an array of distortion effects, as well as vintage-modeled New York and Tokyo filters for shaping your sound.

Discover the Perfect Sound

The Discover feature in BreakTweaker is a novel way to narrow down your search for just the right drum sound. Powered by iZotope's MediaMined™ technology, Discover will analyze and display similar-sounding samples when you’re browsing the Factory Library. No more scrolling endlessly through sample lists when your drum sound is close, but not perfect.
